Freshly Made Masculine? Birthday

Happy to be back in the swing of participating at Freshly Made Sketches.  I just love what they have going on over there.  Their 18th sketch by Linda Callahan was especially fun to work with.  
I started this card with the intent of making a masculine birthday card for my big brother.  But I have NO masculine stuff!!  None.  Seriously.  It's not like I only make cards for men once in a while.  What is my problem?!  At any rate, this is what I ended up with.  My husband assures me that it is masculine enough.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Also... GO PATS!!!!

Supplies Used
Card stock:  Soft Suede, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP
Ink:  Soft Suede, Basic Black
Stamp Sets:  Faith in Nature, Apothecary Art
Other:  Antique brads, dimensionals, sponges
